Our co-host this week on Sounds of PDX was Mike Burling from PDX Spotlight. We also had special guests Angela & Crystal Lariza from the band CORNER and The Lariza Sisters. PDX Spotlight is a locally produced television show that highlights some of Portland’s best talent. With monthly episodes, Mike and his crew assemble a show that has stellar live performances and then a sit down interview with the artists. During our conversation, Angela and Crystal spoke about working with Mike to produce their PDX Spotlight episode, premiering February 14th at 6PM, on Comcast Channel 11.
The Lariza sisters expressed their gratitude to Mike and his crew for their experience on the show. They also said as a band, they now have content that they couldn’t have produced on their own at this time. PDX Spotlight has a diligent crew and a robust marketing / social media presence to help promote each episode and band.
Mike spoke about his passion for music from an early age and how that has driven his love for the local scene. PDX Spotlight and Portland Radio Project are both dedicated to supporting and collaborating with our community.
Enjoy our interview with Mike, Angela, and Crystal.

At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.
I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
